Looking for clock for a 6 yr old boy

Banned
I cant find anything suitable really, would like a non digital, he's not really into any characters, and they all seem a bit girly really, As he can tell the time (in a fashion) would getting him digital mess him up a bit

i like this one but a bit pricey i think

wilko have a clock he can paint! my son did this, but used better colours from his own paints cos they only supply about 4 colours. costs about a fiver from the craft section. its made from plaster of paris and has the numbers in relief and the clock wokings included.

If Sassie wanted this thread in "Deal Requests" she would have posted it there.

She is asking for suggestions on what to buy. It would be far more constructive if you tried to assist in that endeavour rather than being a plastic wannabe mod with zero power. And stop editing the tags.

Asking for suggestions on what to buy mmm sounds like a deal request to me.

To be fair to the saint I don't see much difference to this thread and those in deal requests, well apart from the number of responses. I suppose the mods deem it to be different though.

Hope you find something suitable sassie.

Thank you hun, have reserved both and going to have a look at them tomorrow :thumbsup:

sorry to butt in.......but I always thought the deal request was for a specific item/store and the best price available. This to me seems like a suggestion/help thread not a request...........jus sayin'

yep me too:thumbsup:

well tried it-we got the rainbow too. We were disappointed with all but the clock tbh..the planetarium may be nice if you play the cd too but it wasnt great..and the rainbow...well we were not impressed.
The clock is the best in our opinion and i thnk the other two will be half price or less soon.
Interested to hear what you guys think when you get them.

If Sassie had decided what she wanted to buy and asked for the best deal, then it would be quite correct to be put in deal requests. Fact is, she asked for suggestions - ideas on what might be good - which is completely different. The mods obviously agree - though they haven't removed the pedantic tag that he has added.

yep-the clock was the only one we would have kept-but that wasnt anything to write home about. Just thought he would like the time on the ceiling..anyway no mention of it since-he is happy with his old digital clock!

Hope you managed to find a clock for your son?
